Default Carbonation feel issue in AG stout

Hi

Brewed the stout below a year ago and it has finally aged perfectly. First 6 months it was harsh, then it started to mellow, and now it is smooth, but still very roasted and powerful.

My only problem is....
Carbonation is just right, alittle on the low end so spot on for a stout. But the bubbles are way to powerful in my mouth. It almost feel like drinking soda water. The beer has a "thin" feel to it, and co2 feel take over on the tongue.

Any ides how to fix ? I know i will never get Guiness feel in my stouts, but this one is way over on the other side of the scale.

Recipe....
